WOW! What a week! I’m worn out, what about you? I’ve been super lazy today.. but didn’t want to get in my “I’m too tired to blog” mood.. that has historically destroyed every blog that I have ever started. So, today, we are going to talk about my favorite ‘spoil me’ item: Mascara.
Due to skin issues and a gluten allergy, I’ve been on the hunt for safer, more natural makeups. I’m hooked on Younqiue. So.. where we go, hang on!!!
Like most women my age, I cut my ‘makeup teeth’ on Maybelline. We all had that big pink mascara tube didn’t we??? Huge Brush, gave us the big lashes we wanted, gave us that look like liked!! We all made sure to get the waterproof so that our big luscious lashes wouldn’t end up down in our bras during the July heat! Those of us that are 80’s teens, we know our makeup!
As I got older and my skin became more sensitive, I had to start looking for other products. I’ve tried them all: Maybelline, Almay, Bare Minerals, Loreal, Avon, Mary Kay, you name it.. I’ve slathered it on my face and pumped my thin, invisible eyelashes with it!
With a little more maturity and curiosity, I started reading product labels and searching out ingredients. This is the ingredient list of the last mascara I used:
And here is the result with 3 coats (note to self.. I’m not good at selfies LOL)
This met a need.. until I wanted less chemicals and more lash. I am the type, If I was a celebrity and had someone come in and put on false eyelashes on me everyday. Sitting here, in my pj’s, with doggy on the front, I would have lashes so long that they would flutter against the computer screen while I type!!!
On to the next, and final product that I’m using. I’m sold. I found Younique Fiber Lash and I’m hooked!!! First thing I did was look at the ingredient list:
It is a 2 part system, so there are two ingredient lists:
Transplating Gel Ingredients: collagen, water, natural Propolis, Brazilian palm glue, Black iron oxide, Acrylic Copolymer, Nylon 12, Stearic acid, propylene glycol/emulsifier.
Natural fibers Ingredients: 100% natural fibers taken from the campanulaceae of green tea.
This is my second selfie with 2 coats of fiber lashes (yes, I know that you shouldn’t wear blue mascara with blue eyes.. but I was feeling a little hippish that day!)
Can you see the difference? Yes, my lashes are much fuller and longer.. but the thing I noticed is that the whites of my eyes are much brighter. These photos are not edited except to crop so that I don’t scare you to death with my whole face! I’ve been using the Fiber Lashes for several weeks now, and cannot imagine going back to the other mascara.
I believe in this product. I can tell the difference in my pictures, but more than anything, I can tell the difference in how my eyes feel. I have no itching, burning or redness after applying the mascara.
For the remainder of this month, I’m running a special. If you buy the fiber lashes, you will get a free eye pigment mailed to you from me. I’m doing this because someone that is a negative nellie said that I couldn’t sell 10 sets of the fiber lashes. Hmm.. really. I think people that say stuff like that are really people that are afraid and don’t want to step out of their comfort zone to try something new. I say, take a chance.. what do you have to lose? The product is returnable if you don’t like it. Give the mascara away if you don’t like it and use the leather case as a eye glasses case…
So.. are you brave enough to take a chance???
